TIGRANE POLAT (1874 - 1950)
Tigrane Polat was one of the most prominent artists of the Armenian diaspora. Born in Alexandria, Tigrane Polat went to Paris to study law, but soon abandoned his law studies to become the pupil of his fellow-Armenian, the etcher Edgar Chahine. After a time in Chahine's studio, Polat entered the Académie Julian, where he studied under Jean-Paul Laurens and Benjamin-Constant. Polat had a very light touch as an etcher, and specialized in nymph-like, scantily-clad maidens. His name is sometimes spelled Tigrane Polad.
